Phil Nickson

Head of Retail Sales

Phil joined the Speciality team in December 2014 to develop the off trade channel for the business, and is now responsible for developing plans with National Accounts in that arena.

With 10 years of spirits experience under his belt, Phil previously worked in commercial on and off trade roles for Morrison Bowmore Distillers and Bacardi Brown Forman and was also part of the team that launched Caorunn gin to the UK market in 2009.

When not looking at spreadsheets or hanging out at Milroy’s of Soho, Phil likes to relax with his family – he’s a proud Dad to two seriously energetic boys Zac and Finlay and spends a lot of his spare time building train sets and lego.

You’ll also find him at the bar with a Boulevardier cocktail and guzzling a glass of red wine or down the studio with his favourite Fender Jazz bass guitar – still playing in bands in his 40s, still dreaming of being a rock star one day.
